Another morning of flatness for Dee Why. Primary swell direction has gone around to the SSE. It’s about a metre at sea, but the period is just 7 seconds.
I don’t think there’s much chance of improvement today, sadly. Maybe tomorrow… but then the wind will be a factor. It’s set to be going pretty strongly from the SW tomorrow morning and then it’s supposed to go southerly. That is expected to push up the waves, but quality will not likely be too flash. Still, something is better than the whole lot of nothing we’ve had for the last week or two.
So have yourself a fine Friday, get up to some good and make someone smile!
A cold front is moving across the Tasman Sea towards New Zealand and high pressure system near the Bight is slowly moving east extending a ridge behind the front. Over the next few days the high will move slowly east strengthening the ridge across the western Tasman Sea.
